ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Albany Police responded to a duplex after a truck hit the building, taking out power for one side of the street.

It happened just after 11 p.m. on Saturday at 1012 Davidson Drive.

Neighbors said they called police after they heard a truck hit the building. 

No one was inside the vehicle when police arrived on scene. 

The vehicle did not have a tag and no injuries were reported, according to police.

EMS and Albany Fire Department responded. 

The incident is under investigation.
